We Care Quilt Making Workshop

  • Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library 1B-183 Kennedy Street Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 1S6 Canada (map)

The Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library and the Institute for Women and Gender Studies present:
We Care Quilt Making Workshop

We invite the public to join us on Saturday, March 7th, 2015 for a drop-in craft workshop. Kits including all the required materials will be available for anyone who is interested in making a We Care Square that will be used to create a We Care Quilt.

The We Care Quilt is being made in recognition of Leah Gazan's We Care Campaign MMIW, a campaign to engage Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians to take a united and firm stance to ensure that the safety of Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit is realized in Canada. Individuals will be able to create a We Care Square as a physical representation of their care and commitment to this national crisis which will then be sewn into the collective quilt. The quilter, Tracy Popp, who is assembling the quilt will be on site and working on the quilt so that the public can see it come together.

This event is free & snacks and refreshments will be provided.
